Police officers and BDF soldier detained

LAWMEN CAUGHT

Two police officers and three Belize Defence Force soldiers are under suspicion after they were found in an area where there were allegedly facilitating the landing of a narco-plane. Members of the Belize Coast Guard found the men, along with seven civilians, near a lagoon in Little Belize, Corozal District around 3am yesterday.

Two police officers and three Belize Defence Force soldiers are under suspicion after they were found in an area where there were allegedly facilitating the landing of a narco-plane. Members of the Belize Coast Guard found the men, along with seven civilians, near a lagoon in Little Belize, Corozal District around 3am yesterday. They were detained by the BCG, but were subsequently released after they stated that they were on a fishing trip. After the Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams, got wind of the incident,  he instructed his officers to detain the officers again pending an investigation.

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: “After they were released it was brought to my attention and I have since directed the commander of the Anti Narcotics Unit that we need to re-detain those persons and to have them further interviewed as it relates to what the activities were in that particular area at that particular time. May I state that this detention took place just after 3AM the morning which again would suggest that there is a breach of curfew so at the very least they ought to have and once detained will be charged for breach of curfew. The Anti Narcotics Unit and Special Branch are going to do the necessary interviews and further investigation. Now I’m not conceding that they were out there to land plane or to facilitate the landing of a plane but we have to ensure that we look at every possibility and if it is that we are satisfied that they were out there doing fishing then that will be okay.”

The two officers were a police corporal and a special constable. They, along with the BDF soldiers and the civilians are from Douglas Village, Orange Walk District. Additionally, they will be charged for breach of curfew.
